Fiveandahalfstar No 2013 Melbourne Spring Carnival Certainty

In a time when the Australian staying ranks are slim, news has filtered through that they could be even slimmer at the 2013 Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Three-year-old stayer Fiveandahalfstar suffered an injury during his outstanding start-to-finish victory in the BMW and the extent of it is still unknown.

Trainer Anthony Cummings said he still isn’t quite sure if his charge will play a role this spring where he would almost certainly be aimed at some of the country’s biggest staying races including the 2013 Caulfield Cup and the 2013 Melbourne Cup.

“What will-be will-be, but I don’t know yet if we’re going to get a Spring campaign out of him,” Cummings told Racing Network.

The Hotel Grand gelding won the Victoria Derby in the spring before cementing his spot as one of the country’s best stayers this autumn.

After four consecutive seconds including in the Group 1 Australian Cup and the Ranvet Stakes, the front-runner beat a strong field to claim the $2.25 million BMW.

He was considered the best chance of upsetting It’s A Dundeel in the Australian Derby before the injury was revealed.

Meanwhile, It’s A Dundeel will get a further chance to cement his claims as one of the country’s best gallopers this weekend when he contests the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Randwick.

It will be the first start of this campaign against the older horses for the Murray Baker-trained colt who has been a dominant force in three-year-old company.

After running fourth to Pierro in the Hobartville Stakes, It’s A Dundeel went on to win Sydney’s three-year-old triple crown which included a seven-length win in the Rosehill Guineas and a six-length demolition in the Australian Derby.
